    The same that caused Windows server 2008 failure at boot?

    What did it "address"?
    Found on the MS site: "Addresses an issue in which a third-party Unified Extensible Firmware Interface (UEFI) boot manager might expose UEFI-enabled computers to a security vulnerability."

    i always imagined security patches being a couple of extra if statements to avoid some codepaths. How they can be so messy.

    Nice one MS, good on you to listen to your beta (alpha?) testers for once.
    I have this downloaded though not installed - put on Update Paused after hearing about this last week. I damn well hope it gets removed before installing but I'm MS-realistic, so it definitely won't lol.

    Would be funny if MS announces they discovered an older update that causes black screen issues with Navi cards.

    It was a terrible buggy mess for me so I rolled back. I lost audio and had major stability issues with file copy in explorer. I'd recommend rolling back before the 10-day period so you don't get stuck with this update.

    Had it since the 13th. No issues whatsoever. I'm sure WU will take care of it or fix it with new updates.

    What ever happened to the 'if it's not broke, don't fix it' mentality. As in, just pull the wireless adapter when you walk away, so it can't break itself before you get back.

    I think this is funny as even microsoft can mess up UEFI/Legacy installs still,anyone in the know will know this is exactly what the issue is but microsoft dont want too look stupid admitting it,i bet if the same users were too swap there boot from uefi too legacy the issue shouldn't be there,seen so many systems having this issue since 1709 and having too fix them.
